In theory the talk seems to be Madrid would sell Ronaldo to fund Mbappe. The next galactico! It might be a moot point as Mbappe seems set on Madrid anyway, but who you prefer? One for now, maybe 3-5 years absolute max. Or one for up to 15-17 years. Proven vs as proven potential as it comes these days. Its a damn tough question. We have Rashford and Martial as young potential stars. Would Mpabbe just become another maybe, but not quite there. If that was the case it would become a very expensive mistake. Ronaldo is as good as guaranteed quality as it comes, but the shelf life is uncertain, but certainly not more than a few years. There would be no money back for a huge investment in Ronaldo. Personally I'm fed up of missing out on the Sanchez, the Aguero, the Hazard, Bale, Robben types of this world. I say that in theory that's what plenty of our signings should have been, e.g Kagawa, Mhki, Martial, but for some reason they've just not cut it. Mhki/ Martial still have time, but are some way off of the levels expected in terms of consistency. And I guess the last paragraph is the conundrum. Take 3 trophies now, or gamble for 10? Madrid just spent £40m on a 16 year old. The next Neymar/ Messi/ Ronaldo are getting gambled on from childhood now. I could flip a coin and still not be certain on the right choice.
